Korvia Consulting are very knowledgeable in all steps required to find a position in Korea or China including: searching for a suitable teaching position right through to helping with the visa process. Any questions are always answered in a prompt manner and problems are resolved quickly. I have always been pleased with the fantastic services Korvia offer and the whole team strives to do their best in helping secure a position overseas. Fantastic recruitment agency and I wouldn't use any other when searching for a position in Korea!

Pyeongtaek, Goduk.

Pyeongtaek is a great city to meet a wide variety of people! The city is segmented and not the easiest to get around in without a personal car. Having said that Korea's public transport system is unbelievably good, you can get around to every single part of the country without your own transportation and you never have to wait longer than 15 minutes for any form of transport! There is an excellent balance between areas of scenic natural beauty and spots of well developed infrastructure. The city is well located within South Korea and easy to travel out of to any other places you so desire. The people are relaxed and friendly, but it still has a nice bustling energy! Would recommend for most types of people! The only advice I can give to people coming alone is to not get caught up in being alone; go out, make friends and do things! Do not chill at home unless you are dead tired and are basically sleeping!

Pros
  • Countryside living with all the perks of a city.
  • Variety of people.
  • Great travel base.
Cons
  • Not an abundance of historical sites.

Simply Excellent

I had a fantastic time working with Korvia. The process was nearly stress-free from beginning to the moment I walked into my accommodation in South Korea. My questions were always answered and I was always kept up to date. The only troubles I had were due to COVID-19 regulations that were changing how certain things were processed. Other than that, I was told exactly what would happen next. I highly recommend working with Korvia whether you're going through EPIK or looking for a recruiter for other opportunities.

Pros
  • Always kept up to date
  • Timely responses
  • Listens to your preferences
Cons
  • Slight confusion on visa process, but mostly due to COVID-19 regulations

Easy Process and Kind People!

As long as you have your Tefl certificate, Korvia made the rest of the process very easy! Korvia partnered with a few other agencies to make things like the background check and apostilled documents very easy to receive. When I studied in Korea I did that on my own and it was very complicated. Thelma and Eileen were very kind and helpful throughout the entire process~ Even after you start teaching, you can still reach out to your recruiter for advice or help. Definitely recommend Korvia if you’re looking to teach in Korea :)

Highly Recommended

I was an English teacher in China, looking to make a change, so I decided to set my sights on South Korea through the EPIK program. Being an American, trying to organize my application from China... it was definitely playing on hard mode, but Korvia patiently and expertly helped me through it. Thanks to my main contact Steven Shin, as well as some much needed assistance from Emma Lee regarding my E-2 visa, everything managed to click into place, and I arrived at Seoul for orientation. Trust Korvia - they know what they're doing!

Pros
  • partnered officially with government foreign education programs in SK
  • lots of experience to make you a solid applicant
  • responds to email communication, very helpful overall
Cons
  • programs like EPIK are still very selective so nothing is a guarantee

So helpful

The Korvia team was so helpful when applying to the EPIK programme and made me feel more confident at every stage of the process. Their replies were always quick and they were always happy to answer any questions that I had. There were numerous ways to get in contact which made communicating even easier. I never felt lost thanks to constant check-ins and I felt that the team was really on top of my application. I also thought the pre-orientation that they offered was brilliant and helped me prepare for the moving.

My Awesome Korvia Experience

I am very grateful to Korvia for the amazing support they provided in my relocation journey to South Korea. I was always guided in terms of gathering my documents correctly, while they also provided super useful webinars and tips before the EPIK Interviews. Due to Covid19, some government agencies in my country were taking even longer to process the documents but the Korvia team presented some useful alternatives which I was very happy to try out. I was placed in the area I requested and I love my school! Thank you so much for the life-changing work Korvia :) I recommend this efficient agency to any graduate looking to teach abroad.
